WELCOME to TurboFord, Joe ~ nice looking 'Bird!! Hopefully, you can find another rust-free goodun over there on the right coast! Usually, one of the first "recommended mods" is a larger (3-up) exhaust system and downpipe. Soooo......to run high 13's with just a "test pipe" (converter removed) is remarkable! <thumbup>

Thanks, unfortunately it had some heavy rust on the rear frame rails and floor pans thats why i didn't keep it. The stock cat was still intact believe it or not. My next one i will be keeping so the body needs to be clean.
